Committed to improving the lives of young people with diabetes.

The Children's Diabetes Research and Education Centre was established in 2015 by a Centre for Research Excellence (CRE) grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council and JDRF Australia. It is the only paediatric clinical diabetes CRE in Australia.

Living with this chronic and incurable disease has a major physical, emotional and financial impact on individuals and their families.  Our uniquely holistic research program incorporates state-of-the-art technologies, therapies and education that are all aimed at improving the quality of life for young people with Type 1 Diabetes.

Improving treatment will not only improve the health of individual patients but it will also help reduce the  millions of dollars in health care costs to treat and care for Type 1 diabetics.
